The palace is still a nice visit but has clearly not been well maintained over the years. You can see the difference between today and ten years ago.

One of the best places to visit in Lebanon. Takes you back to the era or prince fakhreddine rule in Lebanon. Its architecture is amazing as well as being in a very nice green area of Shouf which itself had many attractions and nice views.
